Are there any people who don't fit into neat boxes? Any?

Yes this is dumb. But it is concerning me.

I am lonely. Always have been, probably always will be. I was talking to an old friend who I haven’t talked to in a while and he was telling me about all these stereotypical nerd things he likes.

And well most people would say I’m nerdy. I like lord of the rings and dostoevsky and have specialized knowledge, etc. but I don’t have any interest in programming or japan or nerd shows.

So I’m just wondering if other people like me exist, because it seems they don’t. People who are nerdy about a somethings but also not interested at all in other things.

I know this is stupid but I just feel like as everyone I know has found a partner that there are literally no people who I will ever have shared interests with. The internet is supposedly full of nerds but I can’t find even one whose interests aren’t so typical.
